Weird fears?

DS decided today he's terrified of the cow on Peekaboo Barn (iPhone app). He used to be terrified of the seed pods on the bushes in our front yard, but he's gotten over it.

  • My daughter is terrified of grasshoppers lol... even funnier is when our dog chases them around and tries to play with them and my daughter thanks him for scaring them away :)

  • he probably is dreaming about it. Mine used to dream about either things they loved, or things they hated and then they talked about it in their sleep lol. My friend's kid was terrified of this squeaky monkey toy, and if someone had it anywhere near her she would just freak out, screaming, crying, jumping up and down. Hilarious, but she was TERRIFIED! But she got over it, at least to the point where she could pick up the monkey and move it haha.

  • My DD was terrified of loud noises. If a loud car drove by while we were outside she would freak.

  • I know, it's just bizarre. It's not the sight of the cow, but when it mooes, he starts shaking and screaming and crying! Never a problem until today, and he woke up from his nap shaking and crying, and woke up after going to bed the same way, just terrified. Poor kid! Is he having nightmares about cows mooing?? It makes me laugh, because it's funny, but I hate seeing him like this. I know it's just a phase. It's just funny what kids are afraid of sometimes.

  • Oh yeah, he's also afraid of biplanes. Jet, liners, prop planes are all fine, but biplanes freak him out.
